* The comic book ''Major Bummer'' used the less serious version, with moments from history flying by on two dimensional "shards" of time, one of which ends up impaling a character.

* In ''Literature/ParadoxBound'', there are no special effects to ''[[InsistentTerminology history]]'' travel. In fact, it happens fairly often, it's just that people usually don't realize anything has happened. For example, someone may pass through a town that looks like it came straight out of TheFifties and then end up right back in his or her native time period, just figuring it's a town that needs to catch up with the times. It's all because of the so-called "slick spots", which can be found on many roads and railroads. An experienced Searcher memorizes the "slick spots" and where and when they lead, as well as how to "skid" on them in order to pass into a different period of history. It usually involves a car appearing to lose traction on a road (even if it's 90 degrees outside). Any normal drives will attempt to regain control. A Searcher will, instead, know how to properly let the car (or, in some cases, a motorcycle, or even a train) "skid" through the "slick spot". There are some requirements, such as the need that the vehicle be mostly made up of American steel (i.e. no foreign cars, no modern mostly plastic/fiberglass cars). Most Searchers use pre-1975 vehicles that are fairly easy to maintain in any period of history. Some are modified with a Garrett electrolytic carburetor, which allows them to run on water, while John Henry's ''Steel Bucephalus'' locomotive burns wood, since he can always find fuel.

* ''VisualNovel/{{SOON}}'': Time Traveling to a certain date resets any changes caused by Atlas from that point and on. To progress, the player had to be careful of not to undo their own work this way.
-->'''Teen!Atlas:''' But before you go...can you tell me about the future? Or would that cause a {{time paradox}}?\\
'''Atlas:''' ''[thinking]'' Ah, kids and their time paradoxes. So adorable. ''[aloud]'' Come on Atlas, you know in your heart that the branching multiverses model is the only one that makes sense.\\
'''Teen!Atlas:''' Haha, yeah, sorry older me.

* As mentioned, the ''Franchise/BackToTheFuture'' series.
** In the DVD extras, the director tells us that they created an elaborate visual sequence for time travel, putting it under the previous version. Then they decided that time travel wouldn't have any such visuals.

* Although ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' uses the Wormhole method in the earlier stages of the game, once you acquire the Epoch, it switches to the instantaneous variety.
** And once the Epoch becomes an airship, it even accelerates to a high speed immediately before time-warping, making the way it works appear almost exactly the same as Back to the Future's flying [=DeLorean=].
* The MentalTimeTravel on ''Series/{{Lost}}'' [[spoiler:as well as whatever the heck happened to Ben at the end of season 4]] were instantaneous.
** A straighter example of instantaneous time travel was seen in the first half of season five, albeit not by choice and causing loads and loads of painful headaches and fatal nosebleeds. And was actually seen as [[spoiler: a cause of MentalTimeTravel as seen with Charlotte before she died]].

* Franchise/ArrowVerse handles time travel this way. When [[SuperSpeed speedsters]] time travel, they run fast enough to resonate with the Speed Force and enter it (which looks like a wormhole), at which point they can visualize where and when they want to go and appear there. The method used by the Time Masters involves jumping into the time stream (which appears like a different wormhole) and traveling through it to their destination. Only the former method attracts [[ClockRoaches Time Wraiths]], though.

* In the ''LightNovel/SuzumiyaHaruhi'' novels there is one instance of Nagato sending Kyon and Asahina three years forward in time in what Kyon experiences as an instant.

* In ''LightNovel/SuzumiyaHaruhi'' novels, whenever Kyon is time traveling, he has to close his eyes because it makes him so sick he could puke. The reader doesn't learn much of what is happening, but the hints sound like a version of [[OurWormholesAreDifferent Wormhole Time Travel]].
